, August 10th. According to the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development's website, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development is soliciting opinions on the "Notice on Preventing Major Demolition and Construction Issues in the Implementation of Urban Renewal Actions (Draft for Comment)" (hereinafter referred to as "Consultation") .

The "Consultation for Opinions" clarified that the implementation of urban renewal actions will strictly control large-scale demolition; strictly control large-scale additions; strictly control large-scale relocations; and ensure stable supply and demand in the housing rental market.

  The "Soliciting Opinions" clarified that we must insist on delineating the bottom line to prevent urban renewal from deformation and distortion, and to strictly control large-scale demolition.

Except for illegal buildings and those that are identified as dilapidated buildings, the existing buildings are not to be demolished on a large scale in a concentrated manner. In principle, the old urban renewal unit (district) or the demolished building area in the project should not be greater than 20% of the current total building area.

Encourage small-scale, gradual organic renewal and micro-renovation, and advocate the classified and prudent disposal of existing buildings.

  The "Consultation for Opinions" proposed that large-scale additions should be strictly controlled.

Except for the addition of necessary public service facilities, there will be no large-scale increase in construction scale, no breakthrough in the original density intensity of the old city, and no increase in the bearing pressure of resources and the environment.

Strictly control the scale and intensity of reconstruction and expansion of the old city, and the construction intensity of new buildings. In principle, the ratio of renewal units (districts) or demolition and construction within the project should not be greater than 2.

  The "Consultation for Opinions" requires strict control of large-scale relocations.

No large-scale, compulsory relocation of residents will change the social demographic structure and cut off the relationship between people, land and culture.

Respect the residents' willingness to resettle, encourage local resettlement, improve living conditions, maintain neighborhood relations and social structure, and renew the unit (district) or project residents' local or nearby resettlement rate should not be less than 50%.

  The "Consultation for Opinions" requires that the supply and demand of the housing rental market be stable.

The small-scale, short-term demolition of urban villages and other urban contiguous old areas has caused an imbalance between supply and demand in the housing rental market, and aggravated the difficulty of new citizens and low-income people with difficulties in renting houses.

Encourage the steady implementation of urban village reconstruction, improve public services and infrastructure, improve the public environment, eliminate potential safety hazards, and carry out the construction of long-term rental housing for low- and medium-priced, small and medium-sized units at the same time, and make overall plans to solve the leasing of key groups such as new citizens and low-income people with difficulties For housing issues, the annual increase in housing rents does not exceed 5%.

  At the same time, the "Consultation" stipulates that existing buildings should be retained and used.

Do not dismantle and relocate historical buildings and old buildings with conservation value at will, and do not get rid of disrepair, repair without use, and leave them idle at will.

For the areas where urban renewal is planned to be implemented, it is necessary to conduct surveys and evaluations, sort out and evaluate the status of existing buildings, and clarify the list of buildings that should be preserved for protection. Urban renewal should be implemented.

  "Soliciting Opinions" emphasizes the need to continue the characteristic style of the city.

Do not destroy the topography, do not cut old trees and existing trees with local characteristics, do not dig mountains to fill lakes, do not arbitrarily change or occupy rivers and lakes, do not arbitrarily rebuild parks with historical value, do not arbitrarily change old place names, and put an end to it The chaotic phenomenon of "greed for big, foreign and strange", construction plagiarism, imitation, and copycat behavior are strictly prohibited.

Adhere to a low-impact renewal construction model, maintain the natural landscape of the old city, protect historical relics such as ancient wells, ancient trees, and ancient bridges, encourage the use of local building materials and forms, and build urban buildings that reflect regional characteristics, ethnic characteristics and contemporary features, and strengthen Urban ecological restoration, leaving white space to increase greenery, and retaining the "genes" of the city's unique regional environment, cultural characteristics, and architectural styles.

  The "Request for Opinions" emphasizes the need to improve urban safety and resilience.

Do not place emphasis on the ground and light on the underground, and avoid excessive landscaping and lighting, which will increase urban safety risks.

Carry out a thorough investigation of urban municipal infrastructure, investigate and rectify hidden safety hazards, and promote unified planning and coordinated construction of the renewal and transformation of surface facilities and underground municipal infrastructure.

In the construction of urban greening and environment, encourage close-to-nature, localized, easy-to-maintain, and sustainable ecological construction methods, optimize vertical space, and strengthen the construction of blue-green-gray integrated sponge cities.
